Avid Media Composer: Keyboard Commands vs. Drag & Drop

Chapter: Editing

Topic: Interface

The use of keyboard shortcuts combined with the possibility of mapping your own keyboard to suit your workflow gives you the possibility ofmaking MC a very quick, efficient and accurate NLE. I used Avid Liquid previously and I used the Drag & Drop method, as it seemed very convenient. Avid Liquid has also the possibility of mapping the keyboard and using keyboard shortcuts….. but, because of the convenience of Drag & Drop editing, many people (myself included) prefer/preferred to use it instead. With MC the opposite is true. Drag & Drop is not the easiest way!
